Higher volumes were clocked in FY20, due to higher efficiency in operations and expansion of nameplate capacity at Dahej. Last few days of March '20, was affected due to nationwide lockdown, however normal volumes have bounced back and the Dahej terminal is running at a capacity utilization of close to 100% with industries starting up and higher usage of gas from Power and other industries as spot LNG prices are low. Capacity Utilization at Kochi is low and is expected to improve after the completion of the KochiMangalore pipeline by end of August'20. The capacity utilization of Kochi terminal after completion will reach around 30-35%, which will further boost...

Kochi utilization to improve on new pipeline commissioning: PLNG's Kochi terminal is expected to see higher capacity utilization post completion of Kochi-Mangalore pipeline. The pipeline is expected to be commissioned in August. This will help increase utilization, going forward. We expect Kochi terminal capacity utilization level could reach to 30-35% in FY22E from current ~17%. We expect PLNG...

Petronet LNG (PLNG) reported better-than-expected Q1FY2021 results as the decline of 11% y-o-y in its operating profit to Rs. 910 crore was much lower than our and street expectations of 20-22% y-o-y decline. It is attributable to higher-than-expected Dahej re-gas volume at 181 tbtu (versus estimate of 168 tbtu) and lower other expenses (29% y-o-y). Other expenses were lower as variable cost (such as power and fuel and repairs) declined with lower overall volumes. We highlight here that Q4FY2020 operating profit was impacted by Rs. 31 crore for inventory loss and Rs. 178 crore for forex losses. Kochi terminal volume at 9 TBTU (flat y-o-y; down 31% q-o-q) was in-line...

HG Infra: HG Infra reported revenue at Rs 3bn (7% miss). However, APAT was nearly 3x our estimate on better than expected EBITDA margin and lower interest expense. Labour availability has improved to 85% of the required labour force. While HG did not secure any orders during the quarter, it aims to win Rs 30-40bn during FY21. Order backlog is robust at Rs 68bn (3.1x FY20 revenue). Standalone net debt increased to Rs 2.7bn from Rs 2.5bn on Mar-20 as working capital nearly doubled to Rs 1.4bn from Rs 0.7bn on Mar-20. Realization of receivables from Rajasthan project key for reduction in debt. We maintain BUY on HG with a SOTP based target price of Rs 337/sh, valuing the EPC business at 10x FY22E EPS. Key risks: (1) slowdown in NHAI ordering and (2) delays in receipt of pending dues from the Rajasthan project. Petronet LNG: Our BUY recommendation on PLNG with a price target of INR 291 is premised on robust volume offtake in FY21/22E as (1) benign LNG prices will ensure high LNG imports, in turn allowing full utilisation at Dahej on its expanded capacity, (2) completion of the Kochi-Mangalore pipeline by 2HFY21 would subsequently raise utilisation at the Kochi terminal, and (3) healthy free cash flows of INR67bn over FY21E and FY22E cumulatively. 1Q EBITDA was 44% above estimates, led by an 18% beat on total volumes

Lowest tariffs, excellent pipeline network and well-entrenched reach in domestic LNG markets to help PLNG compete with new terminals. We leave our estimates for FY21-23E unchanged. Petronet LNG (PLNG) is a play on India's rising LNG imports supported by soft spot LNG prices. We like PLNG's business model given high earnings visibility. We see limited competition to PLNG's well-entrenched reach in the LNG business. Reiterate...

Petronet LNG provides comfort on the business model and remains a structural story on India's increasing gas demand. With India continuing to be short of natural gas supply, Petronet LNG will benefit as the primary play on increasing usage of LNG. While volumes were impacted during the lockdown, currently Dahej terminal is operating at full capacity. On the new project front, the management indicated the company is planning to set up an import terminal on the east coast. Also, Petronet's deal with Tellurian to buy a stake and import LNG is under negotiation. At the CMP, Petronet LNG...

PLNG has received positive responses for its LT commitment of gas off-take (~1mmtpa) linked to spot prices; the companys board is deliberating on this, and a decision is expected within the next five to six months. PLNG is considering to set up an LNG terminal in Gopalpur (Odisha), connected to the JagdishpurHaldiaBokaroDhamra Pipeline (JHBDPL ~100km away); this would be the biggest beneficiary of new-age CGD gas demand in eastern India. This LNG project would strategically place PLNG (providing access to the westernsouthern eastern coasts), aiding the benefit of gas swapping as the CGD network expands in the country. The feasibility study for the project is complete, and the company is currently in the process of determining whether to set up a land-based terminal or floating (FSRU) terminal; the decision is expected in another three to four months.

nationwide lockdown was announced in the last 10 days of March, which lead to a slump in demand of gas. Operating profit was below our estimates, due to higher other expenses as they moved to IndAs which included lease impact and forex impact as rupee depreciated by Rs. 4 in Q4FY20. The overall volumes were 219 TBTU in Q4FY20. Volume at Dahej was 206 TBTU, and Kochi volumes and capacity utilization remained low. Given gradual capacity addition and increase in re-gasification margins,...

Petronet LNG (PLNG) Q4FY20 result was a miss at EBTDA level due to higher other expenses. The company's revenue increased 2% YoY to Rs85.7 bn on the back of higher volume. Total volume increased 7% YoY (-6% QoQ) to 219tbtu led by 4% increase in Dahej volume and 87% increase in Kochi volume. Kochi-Mangalore pipeline is expected to complete by Jul'2020 which is likely to increase Kochi's utilisation to 30%-35%. The company's utilisation level at Dahej reached to 100% in June'2020 after seeing some disruption in Apr (upto 60% utilisation) and May'2020. We forecast Dahej/Kochi volume to reach to 17.8/1.8mmt in FY22 from 17.2/0.8mmt in FY20. We expect PLNG to get stiff...
